What is a LUT?
LUT stands for Look Up Table and it’s basically a file that tells your picture & video editing software how to transform existing colours to the colours you want to have. It’s a bit like an Instagram filter, but better and more flexible.
What is Teal & Orange?
Orange & Teal is a very famous look that you can see in a lot of Hollywood movies. Over the past few years, it also became quite popular in travel videos. The Orange & Teal Look is based on two complementary colors. That gives a nice color contrast and it just looks great.
There are multiple ways to integrate Orange & Teal into your videos. The most common ways are either to push teal in the shadows and orange in the highlights/midtones or to use the channel mixer to push the overall colors of the image into Orange & Teal.
Why TANGE LUTs?
Most Teal & Orange LUTs are oversaturated, look unrealistic and make green tones look bad.
I made TANGE LUTs to fix these issues. They are actually desaturating the image a bit, especially in the blue/teal tones, to give it a more cinematic, less amateurish look.
The TANGE GT LUTs also help you preserve beautiful green tones while keeping other colours in the same Orange & Teal Look you used in shots where green tones are less important.
You can choose between cold, warm and hot green tones in every single look. Or you can simply leave the green tones like the choosen look pushes them. So you have a huge flexibility in your final grading.
As the Orange & Teal look can be created using different color channels, which give different looks, TANGE LUTs come in 3 variations: red, green and blue. So you can choose which Orange & Teal Look fits best to your shot.
TANGE LUTs Examples
Just drag the sliders to the left and right to see what which LUT makes out of the image. The left side is always the original image and the right side the lutted version. If you hover over a slider it shows the LUT name.
